RADWIN, the global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, announced that its RADWIN 5000 Point-to-Multipoint systems were chosen by the local Port Authority in Texas to help secure ports-of-entry into the US.

Every year tens of thousands of illegal crossing attempts are made over the border from Mexico to the U.S (e.g. immigration, drugs and human trafficking). To secure the ports of entry and the surrounding border areas, video cameras were deployed on the international bridge between Mexico and Texas.

RADWIN’s PtMP systems were selected to transmit video from the cameras to the local control center – enabling port authority personnel to detect and respond to unlawful crossings and other security breaches.

Frontera Consulting, a leading system integration firm based in Texas and RADWIN’s partner, was in charge of project design and deployment.

Dennis Stipati, RADWIN General Manager, North America: “We are proud to have been chosen by the local Port Authority in Texas to play a key role in enhancing the security of critical ports-of-entry into the US. When it comes to mission-critical projects, RADWIN wireless systems are the preferred choice of Police, Emergency, Government and Security bodies because they meet the most stringent technical and security requirements. RADWIN 5000 PtMP deliver crystalline image quality to enable real-time monitoring and fast response to unfolding events.”
